The Wham-o Toy Company introduced the Slip-N-slide in 1961 after being invented by Robert Carrier. The long sheet of plastic became a huge hit with kids and has been a main stay of summer fun for years. The best part was all you need to make it work is an ordinary garden hose.
We understand this is a very difficult question, but what’s the best part about summer? Barbeques are great and so are poolside shenanigans, but nothing compares to the greatest warm weather invention in all the lands—the Slip N’ Slide.
